During the NUFAM 2017, the current governing bodies met and realized that the telematics industry is facing the same conditions and problems on the side of the manufacturers as well as on the side of the customers. This common ground strengthened the cooperation and led to the foundation of the association in 2018. Through their work in the areas of vehicle tracking, telematics solutions and mobile software solutions, they are well prepared for the upcoming tasks at OpenTelematics.
The association OpenTelematics e. V., newly founded by four telematics specialists in 2018, is therefore committed to the simple exchange of logistics data.
The founding members Jens Uwe Tonne, CEO of Couplink, Daniel Thommen, Chairman of the LOSTnFOUND Group, Hans-Jörg Nolden, Managing Director of Navkonzept, and Thomas Gräbner, Sales Manager of YellowFox, developed a software-independent, uniform standard interface.
